A log cabin in the Big Woods

Little House in the Big Woods is one of my favourite books in the whole series.

I love the fact that Laura describes the daily routine

and many things that were part

of her life as a pioneer girl.

I have learned a lot of things and

I have already read it at least four or five times.


(The completed pouch is sold, thanks)


(I have sewn a little pouch  but for those of you

who fear sewing, the size is perfect for a little pillow !)

Enjoy stitching !!!

The attic was a lovely place to play ...

At the moment, I am reading "Laura Ingalls in the Big Woods"

and each sentence is a precious source of inspiration ...

The word "attic" has a very special meaning since it reminds me of my beloved grandparents

who lived in Burgondy and who took care of me 

when I was a little girl ...


Sold, thank you !


HAPPY STITCHING my dear friends !!!

Have a great week !!!

Ma rested but the dash was too heavy for Laura."

The only stupid thing with words is ...

the spelling of them

Laura Ingalls 


I love this quote by Laura Ingalls because I love reading and writing

and I am also my DH's proof reader so this sentence is very special to me ...

I think that I will work thoroughly on this theme ...

spelling bee, slate work ... I don't know for the moment ...


This new pattern is available in my ETSY SHOP



Thanks for visiting my friends !!!

Mary liked to sit and read ...

Once again I got inspiration from Laura Ingalls's books ...

I read this sentence in "On the banks of Plum Creek"

and I got the idea of creating

a big pouch to store the slate that the 2 young sisters were sharing

as well as a little pouch to store  flat pillows representing animals and one syllable words such

as those you can read in the Mac Guffey's First eclectic Reader.

I also add a copybook cover with a cross stitched tag .. even if copybooks were not common at that time ...


Sold, thank you !

Copybook Cover + cross stitched tag and Big Pouch
